This just started.i have owned this van from day one and all of sudden when i go to start the van the cd player wants to eject a disc the clock goes to 1200 and i lose all of my of presets.the radio is still playing super. it is becoming a pain to have to change everything back to all the presets.I very seldom use the cd player.
If the radio requires a code make sure you know it... unplug the battery for about 10 minutes or so.... hook it back up and turn on the radio... set your presets again and it should be fine.... it does sound like the battery power to it is being interupted tho.

This model of cd changer doesn't have the fm modual built into it. So I am wonder how this setup worked before. Most of these units had an FM tansmitter in them and you would just turn on your factory radio and set the fm tuner to a certain frequency like 89.5 or 91.3, not excatly sure on the right number, but somewhere low in the range. Turn on the stero and try tuning into differnet stations.
But like I said this model is desgined to be used with a aftermarket head unit with the proper wired connection going from the cd changer to the head unit.
I'm assuming your using a RF unit (radio frequency). Whether this unit inserts in the antennea line or is simply broadcasting an FM signal via it's own antennea, it is still transmitting a low power FM signal. The idea here is to find an unused FM channel in your area, set your radio to that channel and program the Sony RF unit to use that channel. The signal the Sony RF unit is transmitting is low power due to FCC regulations and to minimize the possible interference you could cause to someone else's FM listening.
You are likely using an FM channel that is being overpowered by a real FM radio station. This is usually solveable if you only travel in your town by picking an empty FM channel. If you travel alot, the channel in your town that is empty may not be the case when you travel 50 miles away. That's just part of the problem inherent when using radio frequencies to get your music into your radio. You have to be willing to deal with it.
As far as passing vehicles, I'm going to assume that the vehicles that are interfering with your radio are doing the same thing you are doing, they are using FM radio frequencies to pump music into their radios and they are using an FM frequency close to or the same as the one you are using. Since having an unused channel on the FM band is pretty rare these days, if there is one, you can bet everyone is trying to use it for their own purposes since it is "quiet", until you come around!
